Graves, Apostolic Ad- ministrator of the Diocese of Alexandria- Shreveport, La. It follows: Dear Friends: I am so grateful to the many, many of our priests, religious and laity who were able to come to Texarkana for the funeral of my mother, who died at age 90 plus five months to the day! I had offered the Holy Sacrifice for her at St. Michael Hospital on Easter Sunday, her 90th birthday. There was a large gathering of family, but they had to take turns in visiting Morn. We thought she would not leave the hospital alive. All of my parents and grandparents were born in the United States, but her doctor referred to her as a "tough Irish lady." She did indeed live for five months after Easter, but she had been bedridden for the past three months and, while she complained very little, she once asked, "Do you think that God has forgotten meg. '' So many of you had the Holy Sacrifice of- fered for her, so many sent messages of condolence and flowers to our family, and all of us are so grateful. I only wish I could thank you individually. I asked Monsignor Galvin, friend from school days in Texarkana, to give the homily, and those of you who heard know that he gave a fine one, as I knew he would. He did have a "natural" for his text in the story of St. Monica. On her deathbed she told her two sons, St. Augustine and Adeodatus, when she died to bury her body and mourn not, but grant her this favor, to remember her at the altar of the Lord! The Fant memorial window in St. Edward Church depicts St. Monica praying for her son, St. Augustine! Sometimes when Mom would ask why God was keeping her on this earth, I was tempted NORTH LITTLE ROCK -- Immaculate Conception Church, 7000 J.F.K.

Then, too, I took a few moments to relate a story which many of you have heard me tell. I never had to face the challenge of Our Lord, as recorded in the Gospel of St. Matthew, that one who was unwilling to leave father or mother for His sake, was not worthy of Him. Apart from my four years at the North American College in Rome, my first year in the priesthood as second assistant at Im- maculate Conception Parish in Fort Smith, and this past Christmas, which I spent at St. Frances Cabrini Hospital in Alexandria, I have been home for every Christmas! This often involved long drives from various places in Arkansas or from Alexandria or Shreveport. These past few years, whenMom was not able to go to church, I offered the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in the home, after having had liturgical services in Alexandria or Shreveport. Has your pastor been so blessed? Few have! When I was home for a few days last summer, Morn called me into her bedroom to tell me what good care she had from my older sister, Mary Agnes, known to many in Arkansas and in our own diocese, especially by those who accompanied us on our won- derful Holy Year (1975) trip, when we established that fun, fun, fun is not in- compatible with holy, holy, holy. I must mention that, along with Bishop McDonald, a number of priests came from Little Rock, some of whom are not in the best of health, some older than I, such as Mon- signor Allen, Monsignor O'Conneil and Monsignor Murphy. How well they have served the Diocese of Little Rock. The night before the funeral service, someone asked me if Bishop Greco would be there. I responded by saying that if he were not at a meeting of the Supreme Board of the Knights of Columbus, he would probably be there. He was, along with so many, including one bus load from Alexandria. With my family, I do thank all of you, my dear people. Be assured of my own prayerful remembrance of all of you and your families, living and deceased. Yours sincerely in the Risen Lord, LawrenceP.
